Here are answers to your most frequently asked questions about Digital Certificate renewals. Can't find what you're looking for? Leave a comment and we'll get back to you.
Only Subscriber Managers/Administrators with an active Digital Certificate can renew Digital Certificates. Subscriber Managers/Administrators should access PEXAplus to view and action any upcoming expiries. We recommend you use Google Chrome for optimum performance. On submitting the renewal form, the Subscriber Manager/Administrator will be prompted to sign using their Digital Certificate. If you are not a Subscriber Manager/Administrator and have been informed that your Digital Certificate is expiring, you should get in touch with your Subscriber Manager/Administrator to submit a renewal form on your behalf.
Digital Certificate renewals submitted after 1 March 2019 will incur a renewal fee. Fees associated with the renewal of Digital Certificates after 1 March 2019 will be direct debited from your nominated fee paying account. Details of the renewal fees can be found in the Digital Signing Certificate Pricing Guide.
If you are unsure who the Subscriber Manager/Administrator is for your organisation (some organisations have more than one) and you are unable to find out via your colleagues, please contact our Support Centre on 1300 084 515.
All Subscriber Managers/Administrators within an organisation are notified of the need to action upcoming renewals. If you log on to PEXAplus and no renewals are displayed, it is likely that another Subscriber Manager/Administrator within your organisation has already actioned the renewals.
Changes to the name and/or email address of a Digital Certificate holder are not currently supported by the online renewal process. If a Digital Certificate holder’s name and/or email address has changed, please contact your PEXA Direct Specialist who will arrange an appointment with the authorised signatories to execute a paper form. If you do not have a PEXA Direct Specialist, please contact our Support team on 1300 084 515.
Note: if a user’s email address has changed, they will need to create a new corresponding user account in PEXA so their PEXA login email matches the email address associated with their new Digital Certificate.
These Digital Certificates are stored on a USB token. To sign in a PEXA workspace, you simply need to insert the USB into your computer and enter your unique PIN when prompted. You’ll receive a separate letter containing your Digital Certificate PIN. For instructions on how to change your PIN, visit the e-Conveyancing Community at pexa.com.au/digicertpin
These Digital Certificates are installed and stored on the Certificate holder’s machine. To sign in a PEXA workspace, PEXA will automatically locate the Soft Certificate on the user’s machine and prompt them to enter their unique PIN when signing. If you use a soft token, you’ll receive a CD that contains the User’s Soft Digital Certificate which needs to be inserted into a CD drive to run the Certificate installation process. A separate letter containing your Digital Certificate PIN will be received a day or so later. For instructions on how to change your PIN, visit the e-Conveyancing Community at pexa.com.au/digicertpin
If you have already installed the software required to use a Digital Certificate on your current device, no further set up is needed. You will only need to install software if you would like to sign with your Digital Certificate on a new device. Installation instructions can be found at pexa.com.au/digicert
Your old Digital Certificate will remain valid up until the day of its expiry. Until this date, both your old and new Digital Certificates will be valid. It is your responsibility to destroy the chip within the USB shell of your old Digital Certificate. You should only do this once you have tested that your new Digital Certificate works.
